My artwork combines gel plate printmaking with collage and a little bit of stitching.

My process

All of my work starts with a gel printing plate, which is a smooth, portable, gelatin-like surface for printmaking.  After rolling acrylic paint onto the surface using a brayer, I press found textures from the recycle bin or nature onto the plate before pulling a print. 

I repeat this process several times to build my "base layers", eventually adding hand cut stencils to create distinct shapes. Some of these monotypes become material for collage, but most piees are finished with lines of machine or hand stitching.
